While it can be argued that Barak Obama doesn’t like Christians, he seems to harbor particualr hatred towards Catholics. For the background, here is some content from Town Hall…
There was his slam on Catholic education. His embrace of pro-abortion extremism. His willingness to have priests arrested if they performed mass on military bases (even voluntarily) during the sequester. And, of course, the hideous ObamaCare HHS mandate falls with particular violence on the First Amendment rights of Catholics.
Now, for the most recent slight, the Obama administration is closing the freestanding Embassy to the Vatican. The Washington Times has more…
The Obama administration, in what’s been called an egregious slap in the face to the Vatican, has moved to shut down the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See — a free-standing facility — and relocate offices onto the grounds of the larger American Embassy in Italy.
The new offices will be in a separate building on the property, Breitbart reported.And while U.S. officials are touting the relocation as a security measure that’s a cautionary reaction to last year’s attacks on America’s facility in Benghazi, several former American envoys are raising the red flag.
It’s a “massive downgrade of U.S.-Vatican ties,” said former U.S. Ambassador James Nicholson in the National Catholic Reporter. “It’s turning this embassy into a stepchild of the embassy to Italy. The Holy See is a pivot point for international affairs and a major listening post for the United States, and … [it’s] an insult to American Catholics and to the Vatican.”
Relocating an embassy out of the Vatican due to security concerns? Because, as we all know, the Vatican is a hotbed of terrorist activity? I think this sends a clear message to the Pope, and US Catholics. The message is simple. It reads, F*CK YOU!
NOTE: I’m not Catholic.
